Tracy Carlson is the owner of Alive Health Integrative Wellness in San Antonio, Texas. She is an Integrative Nutritionist, Board Certified Practitioner, Advance Certified Zone Practitioner. Most of Tracy’s life was spent being chronically ill, everything from severe allergies, debilitation gut issues, obesity and an eating disorder that started at the age of 6. All of it was a result of abuse and trauma that lasted into her early 20’s. The turning point was when her son was born sick. Neither of them could heal until she dealt with the unresolved trauma. The conventional medical system was useless. It was a long painful journey but it’s the reason she does what she does today. Tracy found healing and freedom on the other side. Professionally, the stepping stones were many. Tracy found herself working in Clinical research, actually part of bringing prescription drugs to the market. This was incongruent with her new lifestyle but quite an education on how broken the conventional medical system is. She decided to follow her dream and go to Nutrition school. This led to more education in Plant-based medicine and then Zone school. Tracy says that she is blessed every day to get to help others and partner with them on their healing journey.
